While the library is closed, we’re offering virtual program opportunities to learn at home.
Over the past week we put together a variety family learning activities and professional development workshops. Watch the videos below to see what each activity is.
Be sure to check the City of Plano calendar of events to see what’s happening with the Library and other City departments.

Have you notice when you touch something, it leaves a mark? Especially on a shiny surface, like a phone screen or tablet device? Or when you use tape? This is a fingerprint! Each print is unique, not even identical twins share the same fingerprints.
In this activity we are exploring fingerprints, and with a balloon with ink we’ll magnify our prints.
